As a die hard fan of sushi, I can say this place knows the buisness well. Best sushi in town. Price is reasonable as it is fresh produce treated in the most respectful way. They also offer japanese beer (hard to get in Guatemala) which makes for a nice touch. Will be back!!!

Finding fresh Sashimi in Guatemala is a challenge as it has normally been frozen at least once (looses it natural shining look). At Ran I found the Sashimi and everything else not only fresh but well presented and balanced. Certainly a place if you are a fan of Fresh Japanese delicacies - this is the place in Guatemala.

No words can describe the excellent and delicate flavours that are offered in Ran. The restaurant has a beautiful original Japanese decore. Which gives you a sense of comfort and cosines. The food, there are no words...its purely authentic Japanese. The best sushi restaurant in town!!

Maybe not only the best Japanese restaurant in town... surely the only one if you compare it with other pseudo-japanese, commercial sushi offers. Exquisite dishes are carefully prepare by a skilled Japanese cook, the owner. Everything is really fresh, nothing was frozen before coming to your plate. And the atmosphere is really wonderful. Definitely a piece of Japan in Guatemala... More

Off the beaten track but worth finding. Ran the owner will take the time to recommend his specials of the day. Great taste, fresh ingredients, wonderful time. Good service and prives below others in the city.

What can I say about this restaurant but that it is the best Japanese restaurant I've ever eaten. It has the freshest seafood, the vegetable dishes are amazing, and their service is excellent too. Best Guatemalan restaurant for sure.
